2I am studying for my Bachelor of Science Degree in Management Studies (Accounts) in the Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus. I feel blessed to have been awarded an Open Scholarship. It feels good to continue to work hard without worry about my tuition. Coming from a poor background, I really wanted to obtain my degree so that I can assist my family in the future. The UWI Open Scholarship is a great aspect of realising that dream. With this, I thank God and the OBUS for helping me to realise and fulfil my dreams.

1 I am currently a student at The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus in the Faculty of Medical Sciences where I am enrolled in the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programme. Being one of the recipients of the prestigious Open Scholarship is truly a blessing. It has provided me with a remarkable opportunity to fulfil my dream and emphasises the importance of commitment and dedication. This scholarship marks the beginning of my journey to becoming a phenomenal paediatric neurosurgeon and has motivated me to continue giving my best, knowing that ‘God+hard work= success’.
